PuTTY started out as a Windows-only program and is certainly still best-known as a free GUI terminal program for Windows. If you were to give a free-association test to a sufficiently large set of random IT people, Iâd bet there would be more who would answer âWindowsâ than with all non-Windows OS-related terms combined.
What you should have said is that there is a Cygwin build of putty in the official Cygwin package repository.
Unfortunately, it is a GUI program, which seems to go against the OPâs actual wish, which is for a command line program.
If the OP can stand a curses terminal program (as opposed to a purely bytestream oriented program like cu or direct /dev/tty* access) then Iâd suggest minicom.
minicom builds out of the box on Cygwin *provided* that you have libiconv-devel and libncurses-devel installed. The configure script will diagnose the absence of the first, but it tries to work around the lack of the latter and fails during the build.
$ wget https://alioth.debian.org/frs/download.php/file/3977/minicom-2.7.tar.gz
$ tar xf minicom-2.7.tar.gz
$ cd minicom-2.7
$ ./configure && make -j11
$ src/minicom --version
minicom version 2.7 (compiled Jun 9 2016)
